I have a situation where I need to install and configure Internet Security remotely, on a Windows PC. How can I add a rule or import a backup, during installation, so that my remote connection will not be blocked by ESET? As soon as ESET is installed, it will block my remote connection so I will no longer be able to access the PC unless I can add an ALLOW rule or import a backup during the installation.

If you installed ESET Internet Security via Remote Desktop, the firewall will be temporarily disabled until you configure it and enable it.

Thank you, Marcos.

Remote Desktop is disabled on the PC and that port is closed on the gateway firewall. Is using RD the only way to have the FW temporarily disabled after installation?

Since EES can be installed remotely with features disabled; i.e.


Exclude the NetworkProtection section from the installation (you must also specify all child features):

msiexec /qn /i ees_nt64.msi ADDEXCLUDE=Network,Firewall,IdsAndBotnetProtection


Could not the same be done for EIS using PowerShell remotely: https://powershellexplained.com/2017-04-22-Powershell-installing-remote-software/ ?
